celebrity chef anthony bourdain has died at the age of 61 froman apparent suicide. he was discovered in his hotel room and france and he was actually in france to tape an episode of his hit cnn show parts unknown. eric ripert, a celebrity chef who was also a good friend of his appeared with bourdain on several of his shows and found him unresponsive. that was the reaction of a lot of people although those who were extremely close to him said that it did seem as though things were a little off and before we get into more details of the story i want to emphasize for anyone who is watching, anyone who might be struggling with mental health issues, depression, anxiety, please get help. you are not alone. a lot of people all of the world are suffering from this as well and there is the national suicide prevention lifeline if you want to call and get help. it is 1-800-273-8255. this has been a really hard story for me and i have never responded or reacted this way to the passing of a celebrity, but anthony bourdain had a huge impact on my life and i am now learning on the lives of other people and it is a stating story. very responsible, it is weird, he changed viewed television but it is not like food television, he changed a lot of the role that food plays in a lot of people’s lives now, can trace directly back to his affect on it.
used to be, i work in television so i used to be, cooking shows were just people yelling bam and throwing spice on things. he changed it. he had a voice, a personal relationship with not just the food but the chefs and the people behind it and culture, part of culture is food, but he brought other parts of culture into the discussion of food and brought food into the other parts of the discussion of culture and we do that new show that’s on today and there is one segment in particular where i am doing an impression. it sucks. i am doing an impression of how he talks about food, i am talking about drinks and it is weird. it is really intense and so unexpected. it is a guy walking around making, talking about the urgent. that is how suicide plays out. it’s never really what anyone expects and for me ever so shocking because we are, in one week, we have had two deaths amongst, in white communities with privilege, with access, with healthcare and i just want to think about the fact of what is happening in our marginalized communities and what is being unseen and i know being from a south asian community, i am talking on behalf of the black and brown community as a whole, we’ve a lot of stigma around mental health and we don’t get help we’re deep because we’re always told to be more positive, perk up, you can get through it, push through but really, it is such a huge health issue but accessibility is one of the biggest things in the black and brown community. how are we going to help them push their because these are people with privilege. they had everything. and yet, they had to go this way. two things that i want to mention that i think need to be discussed and it needs to be a little bit more widespread. everyone keeps talking about, this is so unexpected, same with kate spade, her life seems so perfect, his life seems so perfect.
he had it all, how could this happen? i want to emphasize that people’s public lives and what you see on social media is not representative of what is really happening in their lives. it is just not. i remember in 2016, just going back to what you said about stigma. it was a very difficult time for me personally and it was the first time i dealt with depression and severe anxiety and i opened up about it on the show and i did not expect people to respond to me with gratitude because of the stigma. i get attacked all the time, so i kind of share things about myself without caring what other people are going to think are worrying about it. that is my privilege, not having not worry but i had no idea that people felt like they could not talk about their mental health issues, that they could not open up and seek the help that they need because they were worried that they would be stigmatized. please don’t worry about that stigma. we need to have open conversations about depression. a lot of people suffer from it and it does not matter how successful someone is or how perfect someone’s life appears to be, people have real struggles behind-the-scenes. or how funny people are. i suffer from depression and clinical depression, my mom has integral depression and when i talk about it, to me it was a really sad story to read specifically about, because of the times that we are in. there are so many people who have the spotlight that are using it to divide us and when we lose someone who actually uses their platform to unite us and to highlight our differences as positives, it really does feel like a loss because all the headlines are always like, democrats and republicans and it has become so fashionable from everybody to just say i belong to this group, that group is wrong, just to have people like this who are allies to people from our black and brown communities that go highlight our culture and say this is great food brings us together, i am a little bit shook by a.
i have been having my own bout of depression and i will tell you as a standup comedian, people don’t ever think that we are depressed and we are some of the most depressed people on the planet which is why which is to make people laugh because that makes us feel better, but money, fame, his mom talked about him and said he had so much money and he was so successful. those do not fill the void that you have when you have mental illness and the stigma it is. i remember telling my mom that i felt depressed and she would say you are not crazy, don’t say that. there is nothing wrong with you, it’s chemical, it is nothing i can snap out of and it is something that makes me sometimes not want to get out of bed and i have been on the show and been depressed and people are looking and saying what’s wrong with her, wiser not combed. it is because i had to struggle to get out of bed and just being here with you guys will keep me going just another moment, so i will say to you black and brown young people and i’m speaking to everyone, but specifically those of us who comes from those communities were people tell you that it is something you can just get over, and you are dealing with issues, go outside of your village if you need to and go find the help that you need because there are a lot of measures out there to help you and it does not always have to be medication. that was one of the reasons why i got a dog and he really helped me, but it is different. i love that you mentioned clinical depression. there are different types of depression. for some people it is a chemical, physical problem and it needs to be addressed and so it does not mean that there’s anything wrong with you, again, we need to have open, honest conversations about it. if you are a public figure who is suffering from depression, you have the ability to lessen the stigma by coming forward and talking about what you have dealt with and going back to what we were discussing in regard to anthony bourdain teaching people about culture, that is the reason why this is impacted me personally. i did not know anything about him and tell about 2017, i’m sorry 2007. at that time, i was fresh out of college, had no interest in the world around me and what i mean by that is i thought la is the best place in the world, why would i want to go anywhere else? i had not traveled out of the country get one of my good friends was about go to europe and she invited me. i said no, why would i spend money to go anywhere else i love it here. at that time i started watching his show and he sparked this curiosity in me and just seeing him share other cultures and how beautiful the world around us really is, i was obsessed with the show died that time he hosted a show called no reservations on the travel channel and every member calling my friend up and saying i am going to europe with you and i was a first time that i traveled and i started really taking in other cultures and appreciating them. i wanted to share a video of anthony bourdain. one of his most recent videos on cnn. i’m armenian so obviously this is an episode that meant a lot to me personally, so here is his recent trip to armenia. genocide. this isn’t about revenge, this is about recognition. war. if we lose, we know that we will be destroyed, annihilated. earthquake. i am the generation which really learned the alphabet with a candlelight. armenia has endured a lot. this is some geopolitical conflict on a map. every family is touched. every day a 100 people leave armenia. but it remains a place that millions of armenians are very, very sentimental about. i myself, i will never leave armenia. i was born in armenia and i will die here. when are you going to armenia, when are you going to armenia? i’ve been hearing it for years. finally, i am here. he will be missed, to say the least.
